The UKCCSRC funds projects to promote the implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and require data from these projects to be lodged in the UKCCSRC Data and Information Archive. Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and other research funders also provide grants for CCS scientific research. All research council grant holders have to abide by the conditions of the grant and follow their research council expectations such as the NERC Data Policy and EPSRC Research Framework. These policies place a duty on grant holders to offer a copy of their datasets to the appropriate Data Centre. The UKCCSRC Data and Information Archive is a component of the National Geoscience Data Centre1 (NGDC), hosted within the British Geological Survey (BGS). CCS data collected by UKCCSRC and EPSRC-funded projects must be deposited in the UKCCSRC Data Archive in addition to any home institution requirements. CCS data from projects supported by NERC and other funding streams can also be deposited with the UKCCSRC Data Archive, on a voluntary basis, under the same terms and conditions as a UKCCSRC-funded research. This document explains the benefits that this deposit offers, describes the process of depositing information, and provides information about other sources of relevant information.
